I am not 100% sure what "Back" function you meant, so I tested with my Kodi 19.4 test setup:
a) Remote "Back" button which navigates UI -> works (I entered Music > Album on the Kodi server and then used "Back")
b) Skip back in a music playlist -> works
c) Rewind a playing music file -> works

Would be good to hear more about the exact way to reproduce.

Hi @Buschel
It’s a)
Yes, the button still works for your example, so it must be something more difficult. Because it is no longer working on Kodi’s main screen where I use it regularly to exit Kodi. The hardware remote still works, but the one embedded in your remote unfortunately doesn’t.
So my basic question would be whether you changed anything here?

You updated Kodi server since this last worked? You could roll back a few of the TF versions. To me this sounds like a change in the server. These kind of changes were seen a few times already. Kodi treats several types of key events different, e.g. a hard key event (like a keyboard and I assume a remote would send) or an action command (which is what the App uses). Sadly enough I cannot use hard events as well, as this is not supported by Kodi 18 or earlier.

If this is an issue of Kodi server, I suggest you raise an issue in the JSON-RPC area of the forum.

Oops, sorry, it seems that you are right. It is not a regression. It is probably Kodi 19.4 … Sad
(I was completely sure that it worked with previous versions of your remote control app. But I just rechecked, and it doesn’t)

I took a look at this as well out of curiosity. On my 19.3 box it does not work.

I tried to configure the key map xml files but wasn’t able to figure out which “key” it sends when the back button is pressed. Looking at the log it looks like it’s just sending a command called previous window.

At the very least on a physical keyboard you press and hold “backspace” and on Xbox controller you press the “b” button to trigger this window.

@UlfSchmidt - you can also add a custom button to trigger this window. Just go to the settings pane we often talk about, hit more, hit ellipses (…), activate specific window, and scroll down to shutdownmenu and finally tap add button.

This at least gives you a reasonable work around.

Thanks for this tip. But even with your description it took me a while to figure it out. Smile
